Maison Tavel

Interesting
This residence with the elegant stone façade, which was rebuilt after the fire of 1334 and has been modified over the centuries, owes its name to the Tavels, who were Genevan nobles. A visit of the interior gives a good understanding of the history of the town from the 14 to the 19C, but also of daily life. Don't miss the astonishing metal relief plan representing Geneva in 1850.
